This weekend went quite interesting for me, saturday went for a movie and yesterday (20-Aug-2006) went for a short a trip to Pearl-Valley (Muthyala Maduvu) near bangalore with my brother n his friends. Planned for a short trip as my brother wanted to test his driving skills n also his new car.
Itz around 45 kms from Silkboard, went via BTM->Bannarghatta->Anekal->Muthyala Maduvu.Take left in the Bannargatta junction whr the straight one leads to National park. Road is ok till Bannargatta and after that it is pathetic. Road work is in progress n so around 6 kms its very bad.. from anekal to Muthyala maduvu.. itz still bad… found road inbetween potholes 😦
Its supposed to be a small water falls (very small went i went, looked like some leakage there 😦 ) and a downstream thro’ the valley…The place was really a picturesque picnic spot 🙂 🙂 . U can have a small trek if intersted, as itz surrunded by small hills. U can find a restaurant over ter, n also U can have some beer.. We stayed ter for some 2 hrs n started home around 6.00 pm.
On the way back we took Anekal->Atibele jnc.(hosurroad)->HosurRoad-Silkboard route. This one tou a bit far, is very good. Will add some photos shortly.. here.. http://shanmg.blogspot.com
